ARTIST OF THE WEEK

n°231/ Gertrude Stein

August 2017

by Nathalie Azoulai

Both an artist, an art collector and a sponsor, Gertrude Stein hosted one of the most creative salons in Paris in rue de Fleurus. Gathering painters, writers such as Picasso, Fitzgerald, Hemingway or Matisse, she could nestle artists and stimulate them. Such an emulation and a home are crucial to creation so who could be our contemporary Gertrude Stein ?
